One of my biggest regrets is having never gone inside this theater. I walked downtown almost daily with my friend, Dave, who carried lunch to his projectionist father there. I always stood outside, smelling the popcorn, and waiting. Then one day in ‘65 or so the theater had been gutted and turned into more retail space for Fefferman’s Department Store which was next door. Now it’s just an ugly, flat parking lot at the Police Station.
